This is a new figure - not the one that came with the Talk Show chair several years ago. Looks pretty good -- and nice packaging and accessories! Sadly,appears to be wait listed.

Whoa -- that price! Turns out this 12 inch!

It's 6" - they're standing him next to 6" Moon Knight in that last picture.  Nice looking figure!  I do love my guy behind the desk though.

Yea, that Mezco line is sweet, but pricey. I've managed to stay away so far. Having DC & Marvel characters in the EXACT style is tempting. (The Real) Capt Marvel almost made me cave. I was set to pull the trigger & then they released him with the extra gold trim on his shirt. gah.gif So glad I didn't preorder.

It is 6?  What does that 12:1 description mean?

I believe it means 12" in real life is translated to 1" on a figure.  So a 6' person would be a 6" figure.

The Mezco figures all look terrible to me. Inaccurate costumes, and fabric at that scale always looks too big/thick, because it is. The seams look terrible, the zippers are huge. It just makes an unappealing product that was unnecessary. Nobody needs 6" Hot Toys.

It looks like he's wearing corduroy.

Haven't picked up SG yet, but the One:12 (eh 1:12 Scale) line is one of my current faves. Really getting into all the different character selections. The Star Trek pieces are ace:

If you like them, that's cool, but since they're using 1:1 scale fabric and stitching on a 1:12 figure, it just looks tacky.

1:6 can get away with it a little more, but 1:12 it just looks bad. I'd rather have sculpted outfits at that scale.

I agree.  As much as I loved my Megos, I hated those fabric costumes.  The Joes were a different story.  Six inch will be worse than eight inch.

I believe it means 12" in real life is translated to 1" on a figure.  So a 6' person would be a 6" figure.

Yes, it presumes that a 'normal' male is 72 inches tall.

1:12 is 72 divided by 12 = 6"
1:6 is 72 dvided by 6 = 12"

Etc.

I like the fact that SG's monkey pal here is fully articulated as well, good work the smaller 1/12 scale in my opinion.

Loving Mezco as well, just picked up Wolverine and it's pretty cool
